No. 9 Kentucky basketball traveled to Madison Square Garden to play Big East local Seton Hall. The Wildcats and Pirates wound up turning in an early season classic.
Tied 67-67 with 6.4 seconds left on the clock, Pirates star Myles Powell took things into his own hands.
Going one-on-one with Wildcats guard Immanuel Quickley, Powell took the ball to the corner, and hauled up an off-balance three with just over a second left.
He drilled what looked like a certain game-winner, leaving 1.5 seconds on the clock.

Kentucky basketball wasn’t ready to leave the Big Apple yet, though.
Guard Keldon Johnson got the ensuing in-bounds, and let it fly from mid-court, just before the buzzer.
Spoiler alert: he buried it.

The two are now dueling it out in overtime. SHU leads UK 76-74 with three minutes left.
Powell has 25 points on 16 shots for the Pirates, while P.J. Washington has been a monster for John Calipari’s club, chipping in 26 points and 11 rebounds so far.
However this ends, it is an absolute classic at the Garden.
